Gorillas & Tree Climbing Lions: 4 Days

This combination safari gives you the two highlights the animal kingdom of Uganda has to offer and that are most frequently requested by international visitors: First you will be going an exhilarating search for the famous Tree Climbing Lions of Ishahsa, near the Queen Elizabeth National Park.

Thereafter, you have the opportunity to venture on a climb to the mountain gorilla’s natural habitat of shady bamboo thickets and relish sensational views of lush green rainforests in the Bwindi Impenetrable National Park. Nothing however can prepare one for the impact of encountering a gorilla close up, twice the size of an average man, yet remarkably gentle and generally tolerant of human visitors.

Day 2: Queen Elizabeth National Park - Bwindi Impenetrable National Park / North (Buhoma)
You will start the day with an early morning game drive in search of the unique and elusive tree climbing lions of Ishasha. Legends have been built around the tree climbing lions and spotting one of the cats is a very special experience indeed as there are only two places in the world where you can find tree climbing lions. The game drive may last up to 3 hours, returning to the lodge in time for a full breakfast. Transfer by noon to the Bwindi Impenetrable National Park for your gorilla tracking adventure. Almost half of all Mountain Gorillas live in Bwindi and the park itself is also listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site due to its expanse of ancient tropical forests dating back to the last ice age.
